Some art is extraordinarily delicate work, and it's rare to see a form as delicate as that done with these leaves. The work by Nature's Art is amazing -- it is a 6-step process to manually remove a leaf's surface to produce a scene. You can just imagine how steady an artist's hands have to be to accomplish this kind of work.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

Interesting artwork.

This link has more information, and some .pdf downloads too, that should offer more about it.
